Joe Biden mandates COVID vaccinations for millions of US federal workers | DW News
U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday unveiled a series of new measures mandating vaccines for both federal employees and new rules for private businesses as COVID-19 cases rise among the unvaccinated. The president outlined a six-pronged plan to address the recent surge in coronavirus cases, powered by the Delta variant. A new executive order requires all federal employees and contractors working for the U.S. government to be fully vaccinated. Around 2.5 million people will be affected by the order. Surprisingly, the Biden government will also enact a rule requiring private companies with 100 or more employees to ensure that their employees are vaccinated – or that they submit a negative test once a week. The rules would apply to an estimated 80 million workers. Subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/user/deutschewelleenglish?sub_confirmation=1
